If you are a brother to a little sister, or know someone who has a sister, you may be familiar with the anxiety that comes with selecting a gift for Raksha Bandhan. Sisters, especially the little ones, look forward to tying a Rakhi around their brothers’ wrist and getting great gifts in return. Last minute shopping can may not always yield the desired result. Sometimes you may not find what you’re looking for, and sometimes a little sister may end up with a gift she didn’t want.
Key to giving her the best gift is to understand all that she likes and doesn’t like. You can explore options among the five categories mentioned below to put together a gift that’ll bring a smile to last for days:
- A bag of her favourite treats:
The love for food is universal. So why not gift her a collection of her favourite foods? Take a gift bag, and add her favourite snacks, chips, and even chocolates. You can also reach out to various local home bakers for a customized present if she loves desserts. Brands such as Cadbury, Ferrero Rocher, Amul also offer special Raksha Bandhan collections that come in a beautiful gift box; the assortment they offer is perfect for a chocolate lover.
- A toy or a game:
It may sound cliché, but toys and games can be amazing gifts for a younger sister. If she likes collecting soft toys, gift her one that will remind her of her beautiful childhood. You can also gift her board games that you both grew up playing, and even play a game or two after opening the gift. If she is a comic book fan, get her bobbleheads or FunkoPop collectibles. You can find most of them at your nearest Hamley’s store.
- A dress she always wanted:
Everyone’s always up for adding new clothes to the wardrobe, so why not get her beautiful kids’ festival dresses. If she is a big fan of dresses as well as ethnic wear, head to Kidology.in. They have an incredible range of kids wear up to the age of 14 years. They also offer accessories including hair accessories, jackets, and shoes that match well with their offerings. You can get her something extremely special from their kid`s designer wear collection and match your clothes with them.
- A personalized letter:
One thing a sister really treasures and is likely to store with her for a long time, is a card you make for her. A handmade card is an unexpected gift. A heartfelt message within that card can evoke a lot of emotions! You can pair the card with every other gift – be it a brand gift card or an envelope with cash.
- Quirky stationery:
If she is a big fan of painting or writing, gift her quirky stationery. They come in bright happy colours and eye-catching designs. You can build her a collection from the popular brands such as Camel, Faber Castle, or even Muji, or head to the nearest stationery store to stock up on goodies she would absolutely adore.
